What are "forbidden fruits"?

Where did that come from?


Answer by  incantator (81)

The term "forbidden fruits" is in reference to the Biblical story of Adam and Eve, where God forbids them to eat fruit from the Tree of Knowledge.


Answer by  CarolynOsborne (2804)

In the Bible (Genesis), God allowed Adam and Eve to eat from every tree in the Garden of Eden, except for the Tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil. They disobeyed, eating the fruit of that tree, which had been forbidden. Forbidden fruits are anything you're not supposed to have.
